CHICAGO–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Over 40 industry leaders from top health systems and technology solution providers will meet on Tuesday, April 14, during the Healthcare Information Management and Systems Society (HIMSS) Annual Conference to discuss the evolution, role, and benefits of smartphone-based clinical communication and collaboration solutions.
“Organizations have quickly realized that in order to streamline workflows and directly improve coordination between caregivers, the solution must incorporate both patient and clinical context that seamlessly integrates with hospital clinical information systems.”
Hospital executives are keenly aware of the opportunity to replace legacy phone systems and respond to heightened HIPAA-related concerns by deploying smartphone-based clinical communication and collaboration solutions. Although the underlying pursuit is to truly improve clinical operations and care delivery, the existing market landscape presents significant challenges when it comes to properly discerning the right solution. Reduction of operating costs related to managing multiple device types and the direct impact to operational and value-based care delivery is driving many organizations to begin reassessing their strategy.
“Deploying a simple secure texting solution is not enough,” says Joe Condurso, president and chief executive officer of PatientSafe Solutions. “Organizations have quickly realized that in order to streamline workflows and directly improve coordination between caregivers, the solution must incorporate both patient and clinical context that seamlessly integrates with hospital clinical information systems.”
The event is being held by PatientSafe Solutions with industry thought leaders and health system operators to share with one another their points-of-view on the types of solutions best positioned to balance short-term needs and long-term strategy.
